important programs. that was signed into law last december. unless you fund it, they are still hamstrung. if we do a cr for the rest of the year or an omnibus or some kind of funding mechanism that does not give them the appropriations and the authority to move funds from one area to another, it severely impacts them. one of the greatest concerns we have is readiness. i know that we have troops that are being trained to go to the war theater and they are not receiving the same training they did just a year ago because those funds had been cut. if we do not pass that appropriations bill they will be cut further. i was told by the secretary of the army that he is going to have to cut 40% out of his operating maintenance account. this cannot be allowed to happen. >> is it a problem for your efforts that there seems to be a mixed message within your own party, that many people are saying let the cuts go ahead. many of them are saying defense cuts -- we need them. i heard a lot of people saying things that are not in line with what you're saying here /. 743in congress, there are th -- 437 peo

course. let me make a point. the philosophy of the rule, which is adopted in the law, is that institutions that are being supported, defended, encouraged by corporate policy, namely-- encouraged by public policy, namely commercial banks, who do have i think a general consent of some activities and their functioning that is essential to the operation of the economy, if they do have that kind of public support, which certainly now looks much more apparent than you would have thought 10 or 20 years ago. a direct way of reducing financial costs and continuity. it should not be expending their energy and their risks on proprietary trading and doing it for the benefit of the stockholder, perhaps. hopefully, it should not be supported by public policy. that view is, i think, widespread in europe. looking at the same subject, they came up with a somewhat different approach but philosophically it is grounded in the same thing. in principle, it is adopted by the british government. they separate out not just proprietary trading, but all trading. all of their activities you loosely assoc

. it is for law students. after katrina they say that you did your own internal review of possible organizational structure. you did not call for basic change, but for the integration of a unified command. was there a possibility that fema would have been changed, gotten rid of? >> there was a. of time early in the department where there was a lot of resistance on fema becoming part of the department. i believed it more after katrina them before that the answer was closer integration rather than separation. if you think about the capabilities you want in an emergency, fema does not have a lot of operational personnel. you want to integrate and deploy your customers, your tso, or other agents. some of the airframes and other equipment and bring that to support what is going on. the key here is planning. i used to get asked over and over, who is in charge ? the secretary of dhs would order all the elements of government to move around. that is not civilian eminence. in the united -- governance. unity of effort in the united states. you cannot have unity of command. the way to bridge

lawmakers, a very distinguished law professor and government contracts law expert who was on the wartime contract commission on iraq and afghanistan wrote a memo describing all the ways in which the federal government can legally cut spending. and service contracts. it's very important especially in the context of the department of defense. in the last 10 years, spending on service contracts in the department of defense have more than doubled. from 72 billion per year to over to a hundred billion per year, just in the last 10 years. during that same time, in-house personnel costs have been effectively flat. he estimates that government- wide, 70%, to 90% of all sequestration spending cuts could easily come from service contracts. not exercising options, terminating for convenience, negotiating with the contractors not to continue with every option in their contracts. so it's not true that once a contract -- once money has been obligated to a contract that it is required to be spent. it's only when the work has already been done. host: i assume that the argument you are making to the admi

and furious, i was told by whistle blowers that there were gaps in federal laws concerning straw purchasers which should be addressed, and this is our opportunity to do it. mr. chairman, you have worked with me on your bill making many changes at my request. they have made the bill better and reduced the negative side effects of previous versions. i trust you think so as well because you have included the changes in the new bill. the new bill in your substitute amendment also included a revised bill by senators gillibrand and kirk on the subject of gun trafficking. those revisions also reflect changes that i asked senator gillibrand to make, and i think it would be worthwhile to outline all the changes that have been made to the bill since they were first introduced. i think they demonstrate good faith of the chairman and senator gillibrand. for instance, senator gillibrand's bill originally would have made it a federal crime to transfer two or more guns if that person knew that the result would be a violation of state or local law. that would have given states and localities a o
